Bat Halloween Treat Cup

Bat treat cup by Mia, age 3 1/2
The directions for making this bat treat cup are very similar to those for making the black cat treat cup. Inspiration for this craft comes from this website.

Materials Needed:
  • tin can
  • black paint
  • paint brush
  • black construction paper
  • glue
  • scissors
  • clear tape 
  • wiggle eyes
  • small black paper plate (or regular plate colored black)
  • white construction paper
  1. Paint the outside of a tin can black. We used a foam brush and dabbed it to get into the ridges of the can.
  2. While paint is drying, cut out 2 triangles from black construction paper for ears and fangs from white construction paper..
  3. Cut a small black paper plate in half.
  4. Holding a paper plate half so the curved part is on top, cut scallops on the bottom to resemble a bat's wing. Repeat with the other half of the plate.
  5. Glue wiggle eyes, ears, and fangs to the front of the can. (We used Aleene's Tacky Glue.)
  6. Using clear tape, adhere wings to the back of the can.
  7. Fill with goodies and enjoy.
